Chemistry of fear

Green fluorescence labels neurons within a rodent amygdala. The Ressler lab examine the role of specific genes in the neural circuitry which underlies fear-memory formation

Kerry Ressler wants to understand the molecular biology of fear.
"We're studying how the biology of the brain is changed by the environment, and how these changes underlie memories and experiences," said Ressler, an associate professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University School of Medicine and Yerkes National Primate Center. "I think it's the key to understanding lots of big picture questions about the brain and the mind.”
